October: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In the past few years, deodorant, specifically antiperspirants, have been under scrutiny for their high levels of aluminum-based compounds. These specific compounds temporarily plug the sweat duct, stopping the flow of sweat to the skin. It is not just the aluminum that can be irritating your pores; parabens, and artificial fragrances can cause allergic reactions as well.

While not enough information is yet available to directly link these dangerous ingredients to breast cancer, it still is recommended for women at risk of breast cancer to remove antiperspirants from their daily routines.

As a woman-owned company, SallyeAnder continues to support and encourage others to increase awareness of the harmful side effects of aluminum- based compounds.1 in 8 women are affected by breast cancer this is why during the Month of October we are going to donate 100% of our Deodorant Stone Sales to the American Breast Cancer Foundation. We want to strengthen women and empower them to look for alternative deodorants- which is why for the past 15 years we have promoted our Deodorant Stone as a solution for natural odor care.

Our Deodorant Stone is a safe natural salt that kills the bacteria underneath your arms, stopping the smell, but still allowing your pores to sweat. Simply wet your underarm and the stone, rub the stone under your arms 10-20 times and allow to dry. The Deodorant Stone will last you at least 3 years of daily use! Be careful not to drop it though, it will shatter!

Together we can win this battle and find a cure for Breast Cancer. Let’s start with this!

If you are over 40, please remember According to the World Health Organization, mammography is the most effective screening method for breast cancer.  Mammography has also helped reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer in women ages 40-70.  If you are a woman, 40 years old or older, you should have a mammogram done every year.
